New NYT Piece Could Signal Tide Is Turning Against Child Mutilation:

“Transgender activists have pushed their own ideological extremism,” reads a new op-ed from the New York Times.

Yes, you read that right. This is not a Fox News chyron, a tweet from Libs of TikTok, or an excerpt from “Do No Harm,” The Daily Caller’s groundbreaking documentary on the pediatric transgender crisis. No, this is the most respectable liberal paper in the country calling out its own readers for being insane.

The multi-thousand-word piece by opinion columnist Pamela Paul ran on Friday, sounding the alarm on the irreparable damage done to children — and to the credibility of the medical establishment — in the name of gender ideology. It addresses virtually every conservative concern that has fallen on deaf ears since doctors, politicians, school teachers and affluent, liberal parents all decided it was in the best interest of children to pump them full of cross-sex hormones and surgically mutilate them. Perhaps most shockingly of all, it chastises the radical left for its role in fomenting the hysteria.

The piece focuses on the medical journey of several “detransitioners,” former transgender people who decided to revert to their actual gender, often in the face of fierce opposition. Typically, detransitioners are attacked by rabid activists as right-wing pawns, but the Times sympathetically profiles their ostracism and silencing” at the hands of activists and gender clinics alike. They all were pressured by doctors and influencers into believing they were a different gender, and now live with the emotional and physical consequences.

“To the trans activist dictum that children know their gender best,” it chides, it “is important to add something all parents know from experience: Children change their minds all the time.”

The fountain of youth is ... a T cell? 

Scientists have found a way to reprogram T cells to fight aging. After using them to eliminate specific cells in mice, the scientists discovered they lived healthier lives and didn't develop aging-associated conditions like obesity and diabetes. Just one dose provided young mice with lifelong benefits and rejuvenated older mice.

If America loses the rule of law, we’re finished as a country:

Progressive politicians throughout the country are taking us down the road to anarchy. Anything goes in the pursuit of power.

America’s existence is rooted in a critical collection of values. At the head of those values, arguably, is the rule of law. Our society cannot survive without respect for law and order. It all starts at the top.
In this case, the lawlessness we see can be traced back to Barack Obama’s presidency. Obama weaponized the IRS and the FBI to attack his political adversaries. More than a decade later, his contempt for the rule of law has filtered down everywhere. Democratic politicians such as Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Adam Schiff, Bernie Sanders, and Maxine Waters regularly disregard the rule of law when it suits their purposes.
 
By refusing to enforce a variety of laws — he called it “prosecutorial discretion” — Obama encouraged an atmosphere of contempt for law and order that would have been unthinkable just a few years earlier. We are suffering from his failure right now as the social order crumbles due to the breakdown of basic legal principles, disrespect for existing laws, and the imposition of arbitrary standards of justice.
First, the breakdown of basic legal principles. Local governments — practically all run by Democrats — show more concern for criminals than for law-abiding citizens. Our cities are being torn apart by rioting, looting, and arson as mayors and governors encourage the breakdown of civil order.

A prime example is New York City Mayor Eric Adams. Adams believes that the city’s massive crime problem can be solved by going soft on criminals. Instead, he places the blame on alleged white racism.

Weak-on-crime Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s office will not seek jail for anything short of murder or certain types of deadly assault.
When criminals are arrested for committing violent crimes, they are back out on the streets the very next day if not within hours. . . . . ineffective leaders did not appear out of thin air. People elected them. 

Nothing illustrates the lack of respect for existing laws more than Joe Biden’s open-border policy, which ignores federal immigration law. His policy has been supported by “sanctuary cities” that behave as though federal law does not apply to them.

Biden is merely following in Obama’s footsteps by turning the Justice Department and FBI against American citizens. He is sending a message that anything goes in the pursuit of power, from weaponizing the justice system against his political opponents to rigging elections.

Finally, consider the double standard in law enforcement. Democrats and Republicans receive very different treatment from the legal system. Hundreds of violent demonstrations driven by Black Lives Matter in the aftermath of the George Floyd case in 2020 went unpunished while nonviolent January 6 protesters — Republicans — have been arrested and denied due process.

As contempt for the nation’s laws increases, citizens are left with the impression that they can decide for themselves what laws they should obey. For many Americans, lawless activities such as looting the local Target store and setting the police station on fire are now considered acceptable. Where do we go from here?

UK Home Office Staff Invited to Celebrate ‘World Hijab Day’, Claims Whistleblower:

A Home Office whistleblower has claimed that the UK government department urged staff to celebrate “World Hijab Day” while claiming that the Islamic headdress is a “personal choice”, despite its own refugee guidance stating that many women face “persecution” for refusing to wear the religious garb and are therefore entitled to asylum status in Britain.

An email reportedly sent to civil servants from the Home Office’s Islamic Network (HOIN), a group of Muslim volunteers among the department’s staff, extolled the virtuous aspects of the Islamic Hijab, claiming that it was “brought to women as a way of protection” and that it was not the case that men force women into wearing the headdress but rather that “many Muslim women choose to wear the hijab for various reasons, and mainly to grow closer to their faith and Allah.”

The Home Office staffer who disclosed the email went on to reveal that civil servants were even encouraged to celebrate “World Hijab Day”, even though the Home Office itself classifies the forceable “compliance with religious codes or dress” amounted to “persecution” that could be used by women to claim asylum in the UK.

VIDEO: ‘That Christianity Is a Lame Joke’: Canterbury Cathedral Hosts Silent Disco Amid Protests:

Some called it the “Rave at the Nave,” but others use terms like “sacrilege” to describe two ’90s-themed silent discos held at one of the United Kingdom’s oldest cathedrals.

The beautiful interior of Canterbury Cathedral looked more like a vintage ’90s-era nightclub than a revered place of worship on Thursday night. Dozens of revelers jumped up and down with glow sticks while listening to beats on their headphones.

Given the cathedral’s historic and modern place of importance, The Dean of Canterbury, the Very Reverend Dr. David Monteith, assured the public that the disco was “categorically not a ‘rave in the nave,’” and would be “appropriate to and respectful of the cathedral.”

These assurances did not reassure the faithful protesting outside the cathedral on Thursday or the others who signed a petition to stop the event.

According to the petition, which as of Friday had garnered 1,779 signatures, the disco will have the opposite effect of bringing young people to the church.

“It will not bring young people closer to Christ, rather it will send the message that Christ and His Church, and all the truth, beauty and goodness it has to offer, are unimportant,” the petition read. “That entertainment deserves our attention more than God. That Christians do not take their faith or their holy places seriously.

“That Christianity is a lame joke.”

Appeals to the history and sanctity of the cathedral did not sway church leadership, who insisted that the revelers be allowed to discover Canterbury “on their own terms.”

SURPRISE! California’s Ban on Plastic Shopping Bags Has Backfired:

Back in 2014, the state of California banned thin, disposable plastic shopping bags. They only allowed thicker, reusable plastic bags.  The problem, it turns out, was a section of the law that allowed grocery stores and large retailers to provide thicker, heavier-weight plastic bags to customers for the price of a dime.

The problem, people still threw away the thicker bags. Now the weight of plastic bags being thrown away has increased by 30 percent.

As a result, the state now wants to ban all plastic bags completely.

@patrician 

They did away with plastic shopping bags in my state about 2 years ago. They only supply flimsy brown paper bags (10 cents each) or reusable store brand combo cloth/thicker plastic type bags ($1.00 or more depending on the size).  Yet they still have the super thin plastic bags located in the fruit/veggie dept.  And there is still the Hefty plastic garbage / leaf bags and plastic sandwich/freezer bags sold. There is no rhyme or reason with their logic with banning certain plastic bags and not everything in their quest to worship “Mother Earth”.  

If they only knew this is coming, they would give up their stupid  mandates … 

II Peter 3:10 
But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.

Outrageous: Radical Climate Activists DUMP RED POWDER on US Constitution in Rotunda of National Archives – Police Stand Around and Watch:

Climate activists just vandalized the display of the US Constitution in the Rotunda of the National Archives in Washington DC. They poured red powder on themselves and the display.

The America-hating lunatics then lectured the people in the rotunda about their global warming nonsense.

It was interesting to see the police walk around them without much concern. What was that about?

73,000,000 Abortions Happen Worldwide Each Year:

It is almost midnight, but at this stage most of the population doesn’t even care about the endless procession of babies that are having their lives snuffed out at our abortion mills.  Terms such as “massacre”, “slaughter’ and “genocide” are not nearly strong enough to describe what is taking place on a daily basis, and the vast majority of us seem to think that there will never be any serious consequences for what we are doing.  But the truth is that we shall surely reap what we have sown.

I knew that the number of abortions that happen worldwide each year was very high, but I didn’t know that it was this high. Just think about that number for a few moments.  If you multiply that number by 10, you get 730 million abortions in just one decade.

In all of human history, we have never seen carnage of this magnitude.  If you believe that we can just keep doing this indefinitely without suffering any consequences, you are dead wrong.

. . . . the number of abortions performed in the United States actually went up during the 12 months immediately following the overturning of Roe v. Wade…

Unfortunately, survey after survey has shown that most Americans want abortion to be legal.  For example, a survey that was conducted late last year found that a record high percentage of Americans believe that “women should be allowed to obtain a legal abortion if they want one for any reason”…

So the killing will continue, and that should break all of our hearts.  Because unless we change direction, there is no hope and there will be no future for the United States of America.
